Biotech and Medtech Companies

As a company operating in the biotech or medtech space, you navigate a complicated network of regulatory requirements, scientific knowledge, and technological innovation, all layered over the core component of human wellbeing. There’s a lot going on.

So when it comes to your accounting, you need a team that both understands your business and has expertise in its financial ramifications. 

Why medtech and biotech companies need expert accounting

Biotech and medtech companies typically develop, produce, and distribute products and services related to healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices.

To work in these high-level spaces, your company has to leverage scientific knowledge to unlock innovative therapies and treatments that improve human health and well-being. You might be researching and developing new drugs, biologics, and medical devices, as well as creating diagnostic tools and digital health technologies.

While this opens up exciting opportunities, it also means facing unique challenges compared to traditional businesses. These include navigating complex regulatory environments, managing intellectual property, and securing funding for expensive research and development programs.

Plus, in addition to traditional business functions (e.g., finance, marketing, and operations), biotech and medtech companies often require specialized roles like research scientists, regulatory affairs specialists, and clinical trial coordinators. These roles are critical to the success of your company’s product development and regulatory approval processes.

Medtech and Biotech companies often rely on equity financing (e.g., initial public offerings [IPOs], private placements) to fund their R&D activities. Not only do you need to properly account for these financing activities, but you also need to make sure they’re disclosed in financial statements.
